Sobriety Checkpoints in Ellis County, TX

DWI Lawyers for Roadblock Arrests & Charges

Currently, sobriety checkpoints are not authorized under Texas law. Sobriety checkpoints, also referred to as DWI roadblocks, are designed to find drunk drivers and deter individuals from drinking and driving. In states where they are allowed, an announcement to the public is required to give advance warning of the checkpoint. Typically, sobriety checkpoints are organized on holiday weekends or other times law enforcement believes drunk drivers will be on the road.

Although sobriety checkpoints are not allowed, the use of roadblocks is permitted in Texas under certain guidelines. It is possible that law enforcement could attempt to arrange a situation where a roadblock is used to arrest drivers on suspicion of DWI, and if this occurs, McCarty-Larson, PLLC stands ready to defend your interests.

Call our Ellis County DWI lawyers at (972) 843-7456 today if you were stopped and arrested for DWI at a roadblock.
